How to Pack a Halloween Costume

Packing a Halloween costume for shipping to a customer entails following these steps:

  • Find a dry, clean table or folding counter
  • Fold the costume neatly, ensuring there’s no visible wrinkles in it
  • Wrap the costume very carefully in tissue paper after folding it while also placing extra tissue paper around any buttons, zippers or potentially-vulnerable accessories
  • Place some packaging materials like packing peanuts in a sturdy cardboard box, mailer box or envelope and carefully place the costume inside
  • Fill in the rest of the box or envelope with packaging material
  • Place a shipping label on the box and tape it very securely
